Reading Time: < 1 minute [POChallengeExcerpt]

Product Owner Challenge is an agile game played with Lego bricks to demonstrate a waterfall-driven product development the agile mindset.

The product description is in one part of the room, PO and DevTeam in the other. PO is not allowed to show it to DevTeam, but can inspect the plan as often it's needed - PO has to "walk & talk" – real challenges for traditional-minded product development departments.

Challenge your Product Development (PO) team!
  • To communicate with DevTeams as clear as possible,
  • To describe the requirements and product vision to DevTeams as precise as needed,
  • To micro-manage the project, or to allow the DevTeam self-organisation,
  • To handle locally distributed DevTeams appropriately,
  • To manage the product development project waterfall- or agile driven like.
